William FROST was born 1 about 1500 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He died 2 in 1549 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. William married Phillipa.

WILLIAM FROST of Glemsford, county Suffolk, England, was probably born about 1495-1500. His wife was named Philippa. William died in the summer of 1549, testate. After his death, his widow remarried on 15 September 1552 at Glemsford, John Webb of Lidgate, which is about eight miles from Glemsford. He was a widower, his wife Rose having been buried at Lidgate on 11 February 1551/2. John and Philippa (___) (Frost) Webb had a daughter, Anna, baptized in 1553, so it is apparent that Philippa was probably horn after 1508. Philippa was buried at Lidgate on 20 January 1577/8 and John Webb on 25 July 1558.

A William Frost appears in the Glemsford Subsidy list for 1524 when he was taxed two shillings on £4. An abstract of his will follows.

Richard SCOTT [Parents] 1 was born 2 about 1510 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He was buried on 5 Feb 1564 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. Richard married Joanna.

RICHARD SCOTT (Richard, William) of Glemsford, Suffolk, was a clothier and was probably born about 1510, presumably in Glemsford, where he lived and died. His first wife, Joanna, was buried 23 August 1556. Seven weeks later, on 8 October 1556, he and Joan Tollington (or Tollerton) were married. She was the widow of Christopher Tollerton of Cavendish, whose will, dated 12 May 1556, was proved 23 September following. She apparently had a still earlier marriage, for she had a son named Andrew James, according to Richard Scott's will. This was, no doubt, the Andrew who was bequeathed 40s. and a cow by Christopher Tollerton, no surname or relationship given. Richard Scott was buried on 5 February 1564/5. He was then designated as "senior" to distinguish him from a younger Richard Scott also living in Glemsford - a first cousin once removed. His widow, Joan, remarried 26 September 1565 to Thomas Hayward, ap- A parentiy her fourth husband. Richard Scott's will follows.
